Letter: Thanks for support of Fall Fashion Preview

On September 14, the Bitterroot Valley turned out for another amazingly successful Bella Boutique “Fall Fashion Preview,” as a benefit for Emma’s House, the Ravalli County’s Children’s Advocacy Center. The Emma’s House Board of Directors would like to thank the hundreds of wonderful folks whose hard work and continuing support made this such a worthwhile and fun event. The vision created by Mary Marsh and Claire Kemp, owners of Bella Boutique, is a shining example of how we work together as a community for the protection of our children.

This event would not be possible without the tireless efforts of the planning committee; the volunteers; the business sponsors; live, silent and dessert auction sponsors; and all of those attending. It is always humbling to ask our community, who give so much already, to give more. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for the efforts of all of you to help keep kids safe, and to provide essential services to the children of Ravalli County.

We thank you for a job well done and hope to see you again next year!

The Emma’s House Board of Directors: Kristina Bessenyey, Teri Beyer, Christina Dunbar, Bill Fullbright, Kayla Gieseke, Jeremy Kientz, Russ Lawrence, Pat Murphy, Bill Peters, Nate Stone, and Val Widmer, Executive Director.
